Hegel for Beginners. The Phenomenology of the Mind

Non-Fiction, Philosophy

According to Ralf Ludwig, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770 - 1831) perfected German idealism and drafted the most comprehensive and homogeneous system of German philosophy. His most prominent student was Karl Marx, and his most famous work is the 'Phänomenologie des Geistes', written in 1807.

Hegel ranks among the most difficult philosophers of all time. It would, however, be terrible to ignore him, since his findings represent not only the history of philosophy but also world history, and neither Marx nor Habermas is conceivable without him.

Help is needed, and here it is. After two volumes on Kant, Ralf Ludwig acquaints the reader in his proven way with the 'Phänomenologie'.
